Apprenticeships demonstrate and promote the benefits work-based learning brings to businesses, individuals and the Scottish economy. SDS administers Scottish Apprenticeships on behalf of Scottish Government, which incorporates Foundation Apprenticeships (FAs), Modern Apprenticeships (MAs) and Graduate Apprenticeships (GAs). However, some companies also run Adult Apprenticeship schemes with no age limits, often recruiting candidates from transferable jobs such as the automative industry. The qualifications you can gain through an apprenticeship are NVQs levels 2 and 3 or a BTEC or City and Guilds qualification, right up to a Bachelors Degree.
Apprentice pay. Use our Pay Calculator to calculate pay rates for all apprentices including: adult apprentices (an apprentice who is 21 years or older when they start their apprenticeship) school-based apprentices (an apprentice who still goes to high school while completing the apprenticeship). Modern Apprenticeships (MAs) In a Modern Apprenticeship you learn on the job, you get the experience you need, you work towards a recognised qualification and like any other job you get paid. We have introduced changes to MAs including: a rural supplement for training providers in recogntion of the additional costs for delivering in rural areas.
An apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. You’re an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. By the end of an apprenticeship, you'll have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career. Modern Apprenticeships are a great way for students to combine work experience, college practical learning and theory to make sure they are fully prepared for the industry.
